This thesis has the reinstated lake Karla as its subject. Recognizing the dual scale of the landscape (the lake existing as a technical project or infrastructure yet still being considered a piece of nature) the planned intervention is done in two levels, each complimenting the other.
On a larger scale, the system is organized as a quantified landscape, according to four grid levels projected on the landscape, each measuring a single dimension of the lake, producing a fabricated aspect of the landscape. On the smaller, human scale the intention to re-insert the embodied experience in the discovery of the lake by the visitor is carried out by proposing experiential platforms that work towards healing the environment as well as means of interpretation of the landscape and the way of life developed at the lake till its drying on 1962.
This habitational scenario is made complete with the addition of the typical boat of lake Karla, the platsida, as a means of travel but also as the basic habitational unit. Additionally, the basic habitational functions (dining, hygene e.t.c.) are placed on permanent structures at three points in the lake giving them a focal character. The system then takes on a more nomadic aspect with the ideas of travel and destination taking a special role.
